Ban on Czolgosz’s Name


G. A. R. Men Say It Should Never Be Pronounced by an American.

     Madison, Wis., October 3—An order was issued yesterday from the headquarters of the Department of the Wisconsin G. A. R., putting a ban of silence on the name of President McKinley’s assassin. The order reads in part:
     “Our friend, our comrade, our President, is dead by the hand of an assassin, whose name should never be pronounced by an American.”
     The idea is to have the criminal forgotten by the veterans, their children and grandchildren, so that the name of the assassin or details of the crime may never be commented upon.
